I had a dry day on Meall a’ Bhuiridh today although there seemed to be a good bit of drizzle further West nearer the coast. There were moderate West-South-West winds, a bit of sunshine and a soft spring snowpack.

Fogbows were present for a good part of the morning. They look like a white rainbow. An explanation from the Met Office https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/learn-about/weather/optical-effects/rainbows/fogbow

Patchy cloud on Meall a’ Bhuiridh. Although thawing, a good cover remains above 700 metres.
